Diana Wylie retired recently after almost 10 years service in the Estates Office at the University of Leicester.
Friends and colleagues marked the occasion at a farewell reception held on Friday 1 February 2008.
Dave Masters, Insurance and Risk Manager, spoke of Diana, who initially came to the University during 1997 to provide temporary secretarial support in the Estates Office Finance Unit.
Her knowledge of insurance terminology with her excellent secretarial skill was soon appreciated and she was appointed as Secretary to the Estates Accountant on a permanent basis on the 9 March 1998. Diana moved down to 106 New Walk in January 2007 as part of the Insurance Unit.
Diana was quite well known throughout the University by staff and students in arranging some of the day to day insurance requirements and resolving some of those ‘varied’ insurance claims. She was a very conscientious colleague, and nothing ever seemed to be too much trouble for her whatever the crisis.
Diana has quite recently moved house and will now have time to enjoy the leisurely retirement that she has been looking forward too. This will include getting used to her new property and surroundings and unpacking the remaining few cardboard boxes of belongings.
Dave thanked Diana for her service to the Estates Office and presented her with a cheque, present and a bouquet of flowers wishing her well for a long and happy retirement.
